Notes from La Luz Selections:

"José “Pepe” Blanco and his brother Francisco “Paco” Blanco started the Callejuela winery with their father and “dos botas viejas” in the year 1980 within the family home in town, where their offices still remain.  They were OG Almacenistas making base wine from their own Palomino vineyards that they sold to the local bodegas of Sanlúcar.

Throughout decades, their father Francisco Blanco became a prominent local viticulturist who increased his hectares by slowly buying small parcels throughout the Marco de Jerez, all within three very important pagos:  Añina, Marcharnudo and Callejuela.

28 hectares of family owned fruit planted within three vineyard sites of Macharnudo (4ha at 74m) and Añina (8ha at 83m) within Jerez, and Callejuela (16ha at 62m) in Sanlúcar de Barrameda which houses their two tiny bodegas less than two miles from the sea. It is there in the Callejuela vineyard where the two small bodegas on their property store their botas and age their wines.

Añina Almacenista Manzanilla 2014 is made from once fortified Palomino must from their 8 ha plot in Añina located in the hills of Jerez. This 8ha Añina pago is their windiest and most weathered vineyard with eastern raw exposure to the Levante winds. This creates a thicker, more tannic skin and richer, rounder textures."

fermented in ancient Manzanilla Barrels where it is fortified to 15-16% and then sits, untouched, on the lees, in the barrels for three years before it is bottled unfiltered. This style is considered historically to be a “cortado”.
